Frequently Asked Questions About Engagement Rings

How do I choose an engagement ring?

An engagement is the beginning of a new chapter in one of the most important relationships you’ll have in your life. Start by ignoring everything and focusing on you and your partner. An engagement ring is very symbolic, representing an enduring connection between two people. What do you want that symbol to be? The answer will be different for everyone and have nothing to do with whether one or two or three months salary is spent.


The average cost is currently around one months income, but the concept of targeting a certain spend is against the spirit of what you are trying to be achieve. Campaigns like “how do you make two month salary last forever”, naturally sponsored by a large diamond company, strived to increase spending starting in the great depression an were very successful in increasing the popularity of diamond engagement rings. Prior to the 1930s only 10% of engagement rings were diamond. So yes, that means the art deco, gatsby era wedding ring is a mostly a myth. People were getting married with gold bands at the time.


One trend we’ve seen recently is an exploration of diamond alternatives. Sapphires make an equally beautiful engagement ring and are much more cost effective and individual. But as started in the beginning, the focus should be on your partner. What do they want on their hand everyday. What symbolizes your love? It’s a difficult question. Having a good jeweler is important.

Do you buy engagement rings and wedding bands together?

Naturally there are many approaches and all can work. You can propose with just an engagement ring and add a band (or two!) later or do it all at once.  When the ring is a surprise keeping it simple at first and having your partner more involved with the wedding band can give them input on what they will be wearing the rest of their lives.


Engagement rings and bands in the end are meant to be worn together so considering the end goal is recommended whether or not the purchases are made at the same time. A wedding band needs to match a engagement rings contours exactly so that the rings can fit perfectly together. This often involves custom work as every ring is different. Purchasing two off the shelf rings not designed to fit together is likely not going to prove a great outcome. My recommended approach is to make a plan with your jeweler, considering both an engagement ring and wedding band – if there is one at all – and propose with just the engagement ring. Then you have a few months to take the next step. And if you get married on a mountain top in Argentina like I did, you’ll appreciate having less to carry, hide and lose while building up to the big day.

Do jewelry stores Finance engagement rings?

Vinca has a variety of flexible payment options tailored to our customers needs. Come in today to see find an engagement ring you love with a payment plan that works.

What is the best cut for an engagement ring?

For sparkle, a classic, round diamond can’t be beat. A princess, asscher or cushion cut are common alternatives for people looking for unique or art deco-style ring.

How many carats is the average engagement ring?

The average size for a center stone is slightly larger than 1 carat, but size isn’t everything — cut, clarity, and many other facets of the stone contribute to its overall beauty. Vinca recommends looking at the beauty of the stone before the size — you may be surprised to find that bigger doesn’t always equal better. If you are set on 2, 3, 4, or even 5 carats or more, we’re also here to help. We have access to one of the largest diamond inventories in the country, and we’d love to bring the piece of your dreams to life.

What is the average engagement ring size for a woman?

The most common ring size is 7, but the best way to find out is with a ring sizer. Don’t want to let her in on your plans? See if you can find one of her rings, and bring it in — we can size the engagement ring based on what she has at home. In the end, if the size is a little too big or small, Vinca offers free re-sizing in most cases, and we’ll work to get the fit just right.
